Blood-Orange Ginger-Beer Cocktail

Everyone knows the standard vodka and orange juice combination that is a screwdriver, but you can get a lot more creative than that old favorite if you reach for a different fruit in the citrus aisle. Blood oranges are tarter and pack a more intense flavor burst than a normal navel orange, and their red hue adds some nice color to your cocktail. Here is a simple recipe that combines a freshly squeezed orange with ginger beer and gin for a herbaceous treat.

Ingredients

1
blood orange
1
lime
2
ounces gin
1
bottle ginger beer

Directions

  • 1 Cut up one blood orange into slices and place it in a pint glass.
  • 2 Use a muddler or bar spoon to crush the orange slices, releasing their juices.
  • 3 Add 2 ounces of your favorite gin to the oranges. Squeeze the juice from one half of a lime into the mix.
  • 4 Strain the mixture into a rocks glass with ice.
  • 5 Fill the remainder of the glass with ginger beer.
  • 6 Garnish the drink with a single slice of blood orange.
